My Mom was Athletic

My mother was quite active when she was young and stayed that way into her 60's. Here's a snapshot I took of her playing Frisbee with a grandchild.

We have old pictures of her doing cartwheels. I know she played baseball as a kid because she lost a tooth that way! As an adult, she could out-hike me when I was a teenager.

I miss my mom. Today is Mother's Day here in the states. Hope your day was a good one!


  1. Such a beautiful tribute to your mom. She looks a delightful person.

  2. A great way to pay tribute to her. When our mothers are gone, a day like yesterday always carries sadness.
